Collating measuring spoons

We're thinking of getting another set of measuring spoons*, which is why I was looking at them online last night. There isn't that big a range of features they tend to come with. Melamine or metal. Flat- or round-bottomed. Round or oblong. Number of spoons and how small the set goes.

One feature they all advertise, however, is a way of keeping the set together. Handy loop or chain. Magnetism.

C. looked at the images I showed him with astonishment. We can't get those, he said. They're chained together. Use one, and they'll all get dirty!

We keep our spoons loose in a container in a drawer, unchained, although they arrived years ago with loop to secure them.

How do you keep your measuring spoons?

Looped, chained, or magnetized together.
Unlooped, unchained, and unmagnetized.
I don't have measuring spoons.
Other, to be explained in a comment.

* Spice-intensive meals involve going through a lot of them very quickly, and spices require re-used spoons to be both washed *and* dried, which is fiddly when measuring lots of things quickly.

I had a set on a plastic loop, which easily gave up the ghost. Now I only have the half-teaspoon and teaspoon size, which is all I really need for the baking I do (1/4 teaspoon is about 'that' much in the palm of your hand). I have been wanting a full set, and thought I'd go metal, but spring them from their chain almost immediately. I have a basket of baking paraphernalia in the bottom of a cupboard - measuring cups, measuring spoons, and cookie cutters - which means they are reasonably easy to separate from the general 'other cutlery' draw.
